LIBERTY SHIP! - Exclusive & Extremely Rare


Liberty Ship Demo - df|MG Signature Series

Museum Quality Edition

Cinematic and Game Sound Effects Ships


This extremely rare and museum-quality edition sound effect library was meticulously recorded by David Frederick personally aboard the S.S. John W. Brown. One of only three Liberty ships left in existence.

Liberty ships were a class of cargo ships built in the United States during World War II. Though British in concept, the design was adopted by the United States for its simple, low-cost construction. Mass-produced on an unprecedented scale, the Liberty ship came to symbolize U.S. wartime industrial output.  

SS John W. Brown is a Liberty ship, one of two still operational and one of three preserved as museum ships. As a Liberty ship, she operated as a merchant ship of the United States Merchant Marine during World War II and later was a vocational high school training ship in New York City for many years. Now preserved, she is a museum and historic cruise ship berthed in Baltimore Harbor in Maryland.

John W. Brown was named after the Canadian-born American labor union leader John W. Brown (1867–1941). The other surviving operational Liberty ship is SS Jeremiah O'Brien in San Francisco, California. A third Liberty ship, SS Hellas Liberty (ex-SS Arthur M. Huddell) is preserved as a static museum ship in Piraeus, Greece.


This museum quality edition sound effect library contains all the sounds of being aboard the S.S. John W. Brown. Outside at Sea Ambience, Passage Way Ambience, Ships Bells, Auxiliary Pump and Machine sounds, Anchor chain lowering and rising, Engine Room Ambience, Engine Room Telegraph, Ships Whistle, and the rarest of all...numerous sounds of the huge reciprocating steam engine. EXTREMELY RARE!

If you are a cinematic sound designer, museum curator, military historian, game designer or simply someone who wants pristine high-quality recordings of some of the rarest maritime vessel sounds available, this library is for you and you will only find it at df|MG Signature Series.
